If you have been following me on Instagram or Facebook, you probably know I've been hinting about the biggest collaboration that I've had on iheartCrystalPhuong to date. Finally, I can now reveal what I've been working on, for almost two months. Two good months with endless amount of brainstorming, conceptualizing, and inspiration seeking. I'd like to create high quality images and unique content for respective brands and for CrystalPhuong.net. At the same time, I want you to feel personally related to what I'm sharing. Two hundred photos from the first photo shoot couldn't satisfy me. I decided to spend another week on planning, to come up with different creative ideas, and to shoot for Porsche Design over again. 

This is it! I'm extremely proud and happy to share with you, the first collaboration with a high-end designer on my humble blog: It's all about Porsche Design!

Porsche Design is no stranger to fashion lovers. I've been a huge fan of their timeless, futuristic and technical inspired design for a long time. When I was invited to attend Porsche Design SS15 fashion show during New York Fashion Week, I was completely starstruck at their pure, simple, yet very feminine and sophisticated "Zen Tech" collection. I dreamt about it for days after the show. A dream turned to reality when Porsche Design asked me to share with you my most favorite pieces from the Porsche Design collection: A shift dress and The TwinBag Heart edition.

The TwinBag Heart edition is a successful collaboration between Porsche Design and a famous Berlin-based painter- Thierry Noir, unveiled during Art Basel in Miami Beach 2013.  Each TwinBag Heart edition is distinguished by its unique design, expert handcrafting in Florence, and using only the finest leather. Thierry Noir added an exclusive touch with his hand-painted heart face on each of the 200 TwinBags. Each bag is a truly unique piece for that reason. Having an up-close and personal touch to this bag makes me appreciate even more the immeasurable amount of work, skill and love to be put in each bag. Not to mention the brilliant creative design concept about how this bag should be carried. Constructed to be dual purpose, the adjustable handles can transform it from a handbag to a shoulder bag in a glance. Whether I opt for smart casual or evening glamour, I know I can always count on the TwinBag

In addition to the bag, I also have an opportunity to show you this beautiful shift dress that I'm head over heels in love with. Classic cut with high quality material and a timeless design, this shift dress needs no introduction. I love how uniquely that 3 zippers are placed. It gives me so much room for creativity and styling freedom. While the upper zipper can be zipped up for a professional and graceful look, or down for a sexy and sophisticated outfit. The lower one works in reverse, on the other hand. When all are unzipped, the dress becomes a long jacket, a perfect casual chic attire for brunch or weekend. When I first tried on this dress, immediately I knew what story I wanted to tell. The simple silhouette of the dress on soft material with modern-chic characters remind me of a woman who always lives life to the fullest. She is strong yet feminine, simple yet sophisticated, confident yet compassionate. She is a role model for all young women out there, including you and me. I'm so grateful that Porsche Design gave me the opportunity to dress like a woman that inspires me, every single day. 

If you ask me about the best investments for your wardrobe, I'll have no hesitation to recommend you these unique pieces of art from the Porsche Design collection: the beautiful shift dress and the one of a kind, TwinBag Heart edition.  

I'd like to end this blog post with a short video, presenting "The Heart of Freedom". A glimpse on art by Thierry Noir and Porsche Design. 

Thank you so much for reading!
